The Movement for National Transformation(MNT) has advised various political players to have a vision for national unity and transformation for Zambia.
In a statement released to the Lusaka Star, MNT President Daniel Mvula explained that since 2011 the country has lost the fundamentals of multi-partisan, visionary transformative leadership, Christian values and inclusive economic growth.
He said that the country needs visionary leadership that was mature to build consensus among Zambians without of partisan, tribal and regional stereotyping regards.
“The collective cry of all Zambians now is holistic aggressive transformation which is offering without doubt benefits for the whole country and in all sectors,” he said. “This approach is rather competitive and comparatively advanced for industrialization and macroeconomic dominance.”
The MNT president said that sovereignty could only be meaningful if the country contextualized and reformed democracy through institution capacity building.
He elaborated that a Christian nation should be conservative of certain conflicting cultures that dishonor God such as gayism, tribalism, bad liberalism and terrorism.
Mr. Mvula stated that fundamentals like the rule of law, constitutionalism, electoral reforms, freedoms of expression, conscience and reforms of criminal justice system were vital for the country as they encompass a modern society as the country sought for a world nation status.
He added that as a party, MNT will advance the Christian values of a respectful, responsible, patriotic, inclusive and hardworking citizenry.
Mr. Mvula said there was poor economic management of the country’s resources and there was need to consider macro-economic policies for sustainable development.
He said the country should desire to an advanced regional and globally advanced economy and that will meet the demands of population growth, rural & urban backwardness, poverty, illiteracy, inequalities and unemployment.
